“A Woman’s Guide to Spiritual Warfare” by Quin Sherrer & Ruthanne Garlock is an important practical handbook that helps us to understand the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of Spiritual Warfare, based on the Bible. It addresses crucial questions asked by everyone who needs to be delivered from attacks of the enemy. We all must know what Spiritual Warfare is, who the enemy is who started this evil war, and what weapons we are to use to fight it. How can we distinguish between the voice of God and the enemy’s voice? Quin and Ruthanne help us to gain precious insight, confidence and understanding to fight our own spiritual battles with courage. We are also equipped to encourage and strengthen others under attack, who are desperately trying to ward off the evil onslaughts of the enemy. Jesus Christ ensured our victory over sin and satan on the Cross. Here is new and vital Scriptural ammunition for your prayer arsenal, battle arms and weaponry to equip you to fight as a Christian soldier against the enemy of our souls. We must be trained to use Scripture as a powerful weapon to fight the devil. There are seven keys to win victory in spiritual battles against the enemy. God goes ahead of us to lead us to victory. We obey the Lord, trusting in His strategies to win the war. We do not focus on the enemy’s strength. We are not deterred by any lack of spiritual vision. We have perfect confidence in God’s Word. We must not compromise with the enemy. We give praise and glory to God for the victory. Success is assured when we follow God’s instructions. We get the deliverance and God gets the glory!
When Jesus died, God tore the veil of the Temple from top to bottom, because Christ’s blood now gave us access into God’s presence. Jesus was the sacrificial Lamb. Our redemption was complete, united and reconciled with God forever. We can come at any time, with any need, into God’s presence, to be assured of our Father’s help.

The Threat Level Remains Severe – by Rowena Macdonald, is an astute and acutely observed contemporary drama, which starts spectacularly on a flashy note. House of Commons secretary Grace crosses the lushly carpeted corridor to see the white on green words – ‘The Threat Level Remains Severe’ – flash intermittently from the annunciator televisions, hooked high-up on the wall, busily annunciating the business of the House and the bustling activity in the Chamber.
The estimated terror threat to the House always disturbs Grace, although she is well aware that no severe threat can penetrate the multiple layers of protection, the Palace being guarded round the clock by heavily-armed policemen, ready at a moment’s notice to fight the faceless conspirators plotting against Britain.
Elsewhere, faceless state servants, hunched over computers, decode these electronic plots for Scotland Yard to send to the House of Commons, to feed them at regular intervals into the annunciators, to terrify Grace that an unknown faceless person wants to kill her.
A brand new colleague, newly recruited Brett, on an unusual mission to shake up the dusty corridors of power, brightens up mundane office routines for Grace, when she receives an intriguing email from a mysterious admirer, endued with musical and poetic talents. There is only one problem. Is soulful, enigmatic Reuben really who he claims to be? Is everything really as it appears on the exterior?
Grace, Brett and Reuben, with little in common between them, negotiate the mysteries of metropolitan life, to find their fates inexplicably intertwined in rare moments of illumination.
The novel ends with a cream envelope appearing on Grace’s office desk, her name handwritten on it. Her heart always misses a beat when confronted with private correspondence at the office. Slicing it open, she sees a cream sheet of paper, embossed with a green crest and a note written in a smooth, fluidly flowing handwriting. Grace smiles. Handwriting is far more meaningful than seemingly faceless texts and strange, business-like emails.
Outside, as Big Ben agitatingly strikes the last hour of the working day, Grace, reflective of her office secretary status, feels as warm as freshly photocopied paper, adding a poignant end to an insightful, confident, honest and reassuringly humane tale set in the House of Commons in all its vainglorious reality, exquisitely designed to draw readers in irresistibly.

Un voyage de célibat, d’appartenance
de recherche de l’amour véritable
Avez-vous toujours envie d’un amour profondément satisfaisant de l’âme et d’un sentiment épanouissant d’appartenance à celui qui peut vous donner les joies bienheureuses d’une vie heureusement-jamais-après? L’amour sacré est l’histoire d’amour sincère, sincère et poignante de la façon dont un enfant précieux de Dieu peut trouver la victoire triomphante sur la rupture totale. Accablé par les circonstances les plus affligeantes, traumatisantes et turbulentes, vous venez face à face avec une crise ultime de croyance et une défiance engourdie de tout dans la vie. Incapable de porter les fardeaux pesants plus, vous rendez le passé amer et douloureux à Dieu. En vous rendant à Celui qui vous aime le plus, vous apprenez à vivre la vie plus abondamment par le Christ. L’amour sacré vous oblige à courir vers Jésus-Christ, votre Époux céleste, votre heureuse toujours après. Il est votre propre amour vrai, le seul qui peut transformer une vie triste en une plus joyeuse. Jésus est notre seule raison de vivre. En Lui, nous vivons, nous nous mouvons et avons notre être. Lorsque Claudia a ravivé son premier amour pour Jésus-Christ et a pris la ferme décision d’aimer, de chérir et d’obéir à Sa volonté dans sa vie, Dieu guérit le cœur triste du Dr David Cantrell et lui donna Claudia comme épouse. Aujourd’hui, Claudia et David servent le Christ ensemble dans les ministères de Cantrell.
